Universal Flu Vaccine May Soon Be Reality

Now, when I initially read this article, I was a little skeptical.  This sounds like the end all be of vaccines, and a major victory for the tens of millions of people it would save.  Let's go a little deeper into this story, shall we?  According to this article, this vaccine would be able to combat and cure all strains of the influenza virus.  From what I've read on this page and several other sources, human trials were indeed effective.  Needless to say, THIS IS INCREDIBLE! 

While most flu vaccines rev up antibodies in our own bodies, this super vaccine, otherwise known as MVA, uses the bodies white blood cells to help cull the thread of the flu virus in humans.  With successful trials in animals and humans, I think it's safe to say that MVA is going to change the world.  Stay tuned for more!  Please follow me and comment!  Thank you!
